ABOUT THE CEDARS DALLAS NEIGHBORHOOD
Named for its magnificent forests of conifer trees, The Cedars is a historic Dallas neighborhood that attracts residents because of its affordability, multi-use zoning and proximity to Downtown, and has become a mecca for artists and creatives in recent years. The area is currently going through an extensive revitalization, and eager buyers have big plans for repurposing The Cedars’ 100-year-old buildings into art and entertainment centers, charming rental spaces, coffee shops, restaurants and retail shops. Venues in the area have an urban cowboy vibe, with famous spots such as honky-tonk saloon Gilley’s and popular eatery Off-the-Bone Barbeque attracting visitors looking for a uniquely Texan experience.
Perhaps the most exciting new addition to The Cedars is its new DART Rail Station, the first station adjacent to Downtown Dallas and a local hotspot complete with impressive sculptures and walkable access to local restaurants and live music venues. The area also recently welcomed the development of a new Dallas Police Department Headquarters which focuses specifically on community involvement and neighborhood policing, hoping to encourage safety while peacefully bridging the gap between citizens and law enforcement.
With El Centro College and the Martin Luther King Jr. Branch Library both within the area, access to affordable education is another defining feature of The Cedars. One of the most notoriously Texan events, The State Fair, is held annually in The Cedars’ Fair Park, a recreational and educational complex that is home to the 71,000-seat Cotton Bowl Stadium, a coliseum, music hall, two outdoor amphitheaters and several exhibit facilities.
The rental scene in the area is thriving, and with options ranging from historic remodels to artsy lofts and modern high-rises, prospective renters are sure to find their perfect property among the charming streets of The Cedars.
